Boeing Commercial Airplanes
Where are the Boeing airplanes being produced?
The Boeing Everett Factory, in Everett, Washington, is an airplane assembly building owned by Boeing. Located on the north-east corner of Paine Field, it is the largest building in the world by volume at 13,385,378 m3 (472,370,319 cu ft) and covers 399,480 m2 (98.7 acres; 39.948 hectars; 0.399 square kilometres).
Boeing 777. The Boeing 777 is a family of long-range wide-body twin-engine jet airliners developed and manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. It is the world's largest twinjet and has a typical seating capacity of 314 to 396 passengers, with a range of 5,240 to 8,555 nautical miles (9,704 to 15,844 km).
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is an American long-haul, mid-size widebody, twin-engine jet airliner made by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Its variants seat 242 to 335 passengers in typical three-class seating configurations. The aircraft's initial designation was the 7E7, prior to its renaming in January 2005.
|Aircraft||Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner||Airbus A380|

|Range||8,000 to 8,500 nautical miles||8,000 nautical miles|
|Length||63m (206 ft)||72.75m (238 ft 8 in)|
|Maximum takeoff Weight||247,208 kg||560,000 kg|
The cabin pressure on the 787 is higher and the humidity higher than other airplanes. Basically, passengers on board will feel like they are at an altitude of 6,000 feet, 2,000 feet lower than a standard flight. The changes will cut down on passenger fatigue, dry eyes and headaches, Boeing said.
It is owned by EADS, a European aerospace company. Airbus has its headquarters in Blagnac, France. Airbus began as a consortium (a group) of aircraft makers called Airbus Industrie.
Norwegian's fleet consists of around 150 aircraft including Boeing 737-800s, Boeing 737 MAX aircraft and Boeing 787 Dreamliners. With an average fleet age of just 3.7 years, Norwegian has one of the youngest and greenest fleets in the world.
At list price today, the 777-200ER would cost $261.5 million and would be the lowest priced model of the 777 family. Boeing's order book currently includes 257 new 777-300ER models; 44 777F freighters; and 66 777X models. The list price for the 777-300ER is $320.2 million.
"In 2012, Airbus clarified that in 2015, production costs to build the aircraft would be less than the sales price. As of March 2010 the average list price of an A380 was US$375.3 million (about €261 million or £229 million),"
Reuters reported on Monday night that Boeing's July 2015 base prices would remain in effect for 2016. That means that a 787-9 still carries a list price $264.6 million and a 737-900ER still costs $101.9 million, according to the new price sheet. But of course no one pays list price.
There were 489 Boeing 747 aircraft in airline service as of July 2017, comprising eight 747-200s, five 747-300s, 370 747-400s and 106 747-8s.
The first 747-100 from Boeing Co. (NYSE: BA) was put into service in 1970, and those first planes sold at a list price of $24 million. Adjusting for inflation, that same 747 would sell today for $147.1 million. A new 747-8 passenger jet now lists for $367.8 million and the freighter version at $368.4 million.
The Airbus A380 is a double-deck, wide-body, four-engine jet airliner manufactured by European manufacturer Airbus. It is the world's largest passenger airliner, and the airports at which it operates have upgraded facilities to accommodate it.
The Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner is a long range, mid-sized, wide-body, twin-engine jet airliner. The B788 is a member of the B787 series of aircraft.The 787 is the world's first airliner using composite materials for most of its construction (approx. 50 percent).
While the A380-800 is certified for up to 868 passengers (538 on the main deck and 330 on the upper), achievable with a one-class configuration, Airbus references a "comfortable three-class" 544-passenger configuration in their marketing material however only Air France has come close to that number with 538 seats.
The 747-400 can accommodate 416 passengers in a typical three-class layout, 524 passengers in a typical two-class layout, or 660 passengers in a high–density one-class configuration.
It's also Boeing's smallest and most affordable commercial aircraft. The company lists the price of a 737 as between $51.5 million and $87 million, depending on the model. But that does not mean that every time a 737 flies out of the delivery center at Boeing Field, the company brings in top dollar.
The Airbus A350 XWB is a family of long-range, twin-engine wide-body jet airliners developed by European aerospace manufacturer Airbus. The A350 is the first Airbus aircraft with both fuselage and wing structures made primarily of carbon fiber reinforced polymer.

The Boeing 747 burns approximately 10 to 11 tonnes of fuel an hour when in the cruise. This equates to roughly 1 gallon (approximately 4 litres) of fuel every second. It can carry up to 238,604 liters of fuel. It has a range of about 7,790 nautical miles.
